We’ve all looked at our pets once upon a time and thought, ‘they’d look so much cooler with a full-sleeve tattoo’… no? 

Well, it’s now a thing. Yes. You can now get tattoo sleeves for your cat! SimplySphynx, an Etsy shop run by Airie McCready, is now offering customers tattoo sleeves for their pets. 

The tattoo sleeves come in the form of a basic piece of clothing you can put over your cat – so don’t worry, it’s totally friendly. 

Since it was advertised on the store, which advertises a wide variety of inked tops for cats, the new product has gone viral, with hundreds of 5-star reviews from customers and general enthusiasts who seem to think the tattoo sleeves are the best thing since slice bread. 

What makes this brilliant idea even better is that you can choose to have the sleeves custom-made – just let the seller know what style you’re looking for and she’ll make a sleeve that fits your request. 

In case you’re wondering, Airie is a big cat-lover herself; her six cats – three Sphynxes and three Devon Rexes – all have their own special sleeves. 

Explaining how she came up with the idea, Airie said: 

"The idea came to me when a friend showed me a silly fake tattoo sleeve and teased me how I did not have to get ink, I could have gotten one of these (I have a lot of tattoos). ‘I grabbed it from him and thought “if only I knew how to sew”. Reckon your cat can pull off the punk look? You can get one here. As well as the tattoo sleeves, the seller also sells toys, clothes and other super cool pet accessories.
